SCS 30th Annual General Meeting 2021 – Hybrid Event

Date: 24th September 2021

Location: Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh & Online

Events

Save the date for the upcoming SCS event on Friday 24th September.

We plan for this event to be hybrid taking place at the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh and livestreamed to other delegates.

This year’s programme will contact case presentations, scientific abstracts as well as a keynote lecture.

Call for Abstracts: The Scottish Cardiac Society invite abstract submissions related to academic clinical and scientific research as well as the results of projects in service development and quality improvement.  Submissions are welcome from clinical and research physicians, nurses, cardiac physiologists, other allied healthcare professionals and medical students.

If the event can proceed as a hybrid event then successful abstract authors can choose whether to give their presentation either in person or as a pre-recorded talk. If recorded, the presenter must be able to attend virtually for any questions from the delegates.

Emily Taylor Travel Fund – Autumn Meeting prizes

Several travel grants will be awarded to assist with attendance at a future meeting relevant to cardiology or cardiac surgery.

  • Best abstract oral presentation by a non-consultant physician (£250)
  • Best abstract oral presentation by a Nurse, Cardiac physiologist, or AHP (£250)

Awards are subject to the applicant being a member of the SCS and submitting a report to be presented at an SCS meeting and/or publication on SCS website.

Medical Student Prize

There will be a prize (worth £200) awarded for the best medical student oral abstract presentation.  This will be awarded to assist with attendance at a future meeting relevant to cardiology or cardiac surgery, a student elective, or for another educational purpose.

For all categories of prize there should be more than one submission for the prize to be awarded.  In the event of a single submission for any given category it will be for the independent judging panel to decide whether that presentation is of sufficient quality to justify the award being granted.
